The thing I like about cornbread is the fact that you can eat it with something spicy or sweet. I like to pair it with spicy chili, I put a piece of cornbread in the bottom of a bowl and slather the top with the spicy chili. I also like to have a slab of cornbread dipped in honey, so delicious!
I recommend keeping cornmeal stocked in your pantry, it makes it easy to whip up this recipe.
I use parchment paper in the pan to make for easy clean up.
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup yellow cornmeal
- 2/3 cup white sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 egg
- 1 cup milk
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Spray or lightly grease a 9 inch round cake pan.
- In a large bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, salt and baking powder. Stir in egg, milk and vegetable oil until well combined. Pour batter into prepared pan.
- Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.
